COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish. Layering UK Target hops in the boil adds a pleasant, earthy complexity while higher fermentation temperatures enhance the overall flavor with fruity esters. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex – Double Stout.

ContemplateBeer (1661) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Aroma of cocoa, coffee, vanilla, raisins and whoppers. Appearance is well carbonated black with thick mocha head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some pronounced roastiness; the finish is slightly fruity and boozy. Palate was bubbly and creamy. A dream.

MMMM. I’m really getting behind the green flash style lately. I don’t know what took me so long? Crappy labels maybe. Anyhow! Aroma is a bit muted but obvious overtones of chocolate, coffee, roast, tiny hint of smoke. A bit softer than a big RIS but definitely hitting all the right notes. App: thick black, not oily, not viscous but completely opaque. Serious brown head leaves a brown coating on the glass. Taste: sweeter than a RIS which the nose really hinted at but the taste confirms. Still nice with roast and dark chocolate, coffee, but not molasses. palate is a bit bubbly with good carb and not to thick as to be chewy but again it’s not trying to be a HUGE beer. I think it’s just trying to be a damned good stout. Overall I wish I had discovered this before the winter was almost over. Green flash is doing most things right nowadays (except the saison) and this continues that trend!

From a bottle, $3.50 at vintage. Pour is big and black and the aroma is quite attractive, roasty and clean. Very nice thin creamy head. First taste is oh my, trying to be an imperial stout. Yes, I have tasted imperial stouts much milder than this, not sure what the story is here, this should be styled an impy. Now I know why it rates so high on this website, its an impy masquerading as a stout. If you like impy stout, fine, try this but if you are just simply a stout lover, forget about this, its over the top. Near rude rototilling flavors from beginning to end. Big alky laced bitter somewhat choco thing in here. Bitter lingering finish, a little dissapointed in this one. I was expecting something a little more behaved for the style.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Very dry for a stout of this alcohol content...pours very dark, roasty, like a strong bitter coffee, with a dry relatively quick and clean finish. It’s got a medium mouthfeel, not too heavy but fills your palate.
